Wanna Be A Rock Star?
I was at the gym listening to AC/DC, and on came It's A Long Way To The Top. It seems to be an admonition to those trying to be rock stars that you better be ready for the life of getting to the top. Check it out:

And there are many others who riff on the life: the Kinks, Boston, Foreigner, Zappa:
But you better be careful. Lots of dead bodies on the rock 'n' roll road. And there are songs about that, too.
In retirement, I'm getting a guitar and amp and will never ever play that thing in public. Unless there is money involved, and then I'm all over it.
Happy New Year to all of you!
